Forgot to post this up yesterday,

There's a longer version of it being shown on ITV2 next Tuesday as well.

Was a very good watch, well put together.

Remember watching this fight live . Still the best fight I've ever watched. It's a shame Benn could never knock out that cocky shit Eubank tho

Watched this when it was on. I enjoyed it but I'd appreciate it more if it was shown by a different channel. ITV have shown 1 fight in 5 years but they show this at peak time helping to influence a sudden negative stigma in the media all of a sudden which come out of nowhere.

Funnily enough I was at some awards last night at the ITV table and got in to a discussion on the same matter with a lad who put it pretty blunty that they don't give a fuck about the sport but put this out simply for ratings (their also looking to turn ITV4 in to a sports station with little interest in showing any boxing on it might I add)

No Chanel top heads give a shit about any sport mate,

Only what ratings that sport can bring, always been the case, always will be!

Tv is and has always been about ratings. It is what it is.

Sky wasnt interested in MMA when it was on Eurosport and Bravo, but no doubt if the popularity keeps rising it'll want to get it's finger in that pie aswell. It's the nature of the beast. The same way that if the popurlarity drops Espn will drop it like hot potatoes,
